Swiss Air Lines drops chocolate supplier over ties to Christian group

The long-term chocolate supplier to Swiss Air Lines has been axed over its connection to a Christian organisation.

Läderach has supplied the Swiss flag carrier for over ten years, but recently came under fire from homosexual and pro-abortion activists.

Owner Jürg Läderach is also President of the pro-family, pro-life group Christianity for Today (CFT).

Acid attack

CFT believes that marriage is between one man and one woman and that life begins from conception. It also sponsors Switzerland’s March for Life.

Last October, activists attacked several Läderach shops. One shop in Basel was vandalised with butyric acid, a strong smelling substance which can induce vomiting.

The activists also demanded hotels and restaurants cease trading with the brand.

The airline says it will phase out Läderach’s chocolates by April.


Last year, a UK shopping centre caved in to LGBT demands to drop a Christian fast-food chain.

Activists protested outside the store because the company previously donated money to Christian charities that support traditional marriage.

As a result, the Oracle centre in Reading said it would not renew the company’s six-month lease when it expired.

Ciarán Kelly of The Christian Institute called the shopping centre’s decision “intolerant and illiberal”.
